Why does the Cyclone have a separate suspension for the basket?

The microphone needs its own Lyre suspension, of course. Suspended basket are about removing ~acoustically~ linked handling noise - something that the mechanical microphone suspension cannot help with.

Rycote wanted to make the basket very quick and easy to remove, and that required a small suspension unit. However a single one at the bottom would produce a very unstable basket - it would wobble. Adding a second unit at the top overcomes this problem.
